Hi there,

When in a Teams Meeting, I'm initially able to share my screen/PPT/video files for the first couple of times and then at the end of the meeting if I try to share something - I can click share content and I can see all my files/desktop etc as normal but when I click to share nothing happens. I have to leave and rejoin the meeting to then share something which is really annoying.

Any help with this would be much appreciated!

Hello @megcyn  Based on prior posts in this community, this seems to be a common problem.  The best response in these conversations suggests to open a support ticket with your administrator, or you can go to answers.microsoft.com

@megcyn I fixed this issue by uninstalling and reinstalling updated version of teams!

Thanks,
